Re: Interesting...
@mhhf1ve, LOL! Laziness occurs in all generations not just millennials but in that example using the word lazy was a poor choice or words. Some millennials are trying to combat the bad labels placed on them and then some are living up to those labels just as with other generations who have labels placed on them.

VR
I am not a fan of VR and never will be. It just does not appeal to me. I prefer watching a TV or watching something on a portable device. I don't need any more devices to carry around, search for, pay for, maintain and care for. I have more than enough. I will pass on VR.

Re: Interesting...
@Ariella, I agree, just because someone doesn't want to go to a movie theater does not mean they are lazy. Sometimes I order new releases via my cable subscription but that doesn't mean I am lazy. This is definitely a poor choice of words to describe a demographic that all companies are clamoring to influence for their business.

Hulu VR
Everything is going digital, all buildings, store, retailers will all become virtual or will be forced to do so. However, it may takes a few years before movie theaters go out of existence.

Re: Hulu VR Update
I agree I definitely don't think laziness has anything to do with it. I think it's just times are changing and people are evolving.

Movie Theatre's
Honestly, with the direction movie theaters are going, that doesn't sound like a half-bad idea. To justify the high prices of their tickets a lot of movie theaters are switching to the reclining chair seating and even offering delivery of food right to your seat. Except that also means you are assigned a seat in the theater, and there are far fewer seats. So really, it's best to purchase your tickets ahead of time. Gone are the days where you might just want to show up at the theater to see a movie. Over the weekend my husband and I were going to a United Artist theater, and while I knew the local AMC theaters had made this switch, I was completely oblivious to the fact that United Artist had as well. Top that off with the fact that when we arrived was the actual start time of the movie. (Rogue One - we're behind.) By the time we arrived the only available seats were in the front row. Thinking it was similar to the front row of yesteryear we agreed. But it wasn't, and I honestly don't even know why they bothered with that row. Even in the fully reclined chair, you're still basically looking straight up to see the movie. Needless to say we got our money back and left. I've always really enjoyed going to the movies, but the additional hassle has me quesitoning whether or not it's even worth it.

Re: Hulu VR Update
@dcawey: I don't think a company of Hulu's stature would not be using gimmicks as a marketing strategy. I'm not on Hulu's marketing team, but I think the company has a solid plan in mind as far as content goes.

Re: Hulu VR Update
@srufolo1 Here's my question: Is this a real technology play for Hulu, or a gimmick?

I'm asking because I think a lot of content providers are going to talk about VR as a new business line. But it just seems like a whole lot of marketing nonsense to me. I'm not interested in watching Brooklyn Nine Nine in VR.

Hulu VR Update
I believe Hulu has embarked on something great with this idea. Also, I don't think it's that Millennials are lazy and not interested in theaters. It's about being in the comfort of your own home without having to listen to people chew on popcorn and candy, and the privacy. I'm all for this VR home-theater idea. How do I sign on?
